vertical/horizontal lock on item placement?

I think it would be nice quality of life option to have item placement locked on grid to a vertical or horizontal line when doing a running placement of things. There could be a toggle key for this functionality.

This would be nice in case you...

1) run into things, get displaced on your running line and start placing things next to the line intended
2) sneeze causing a rapid unintentional hand movement that causes you to place stuff all over the place for a second
3) have shaky hands and have trouble keeping the mouse in place
4) make some sort of other mistake while running and placing things wrong while intending to place things in line

Added to viewtopic.php?f=80&t=22305 Walking on Belts (New Power Armor module)

See for example viewtopic.php?f=6&t=35894 Locking mouse X/Y coords when placing things
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.
